Details

Heather holds a BA (HONS) in Fine Art, and has been teaching locally for over 15 years.
In this class she teaches all methods of making, from hand building techniques such as coiling, pinching and slab work, to throwing pots on the wheel.

This class is specifically aimed at the art of Raku in a 5 week Raku building and firing course:
Week 1 -3 will focus on creating ceramic work for raku firing using specialist clay, finished for drying and firing and glazed ready for the 2 Raku firing sessions on week 4 & 5.

Please note, our booking app does not show the varied timings of the classes which will be:
Week 1-3 will run 7-9.30pm
Week 4-5 will run 6-9.30pm

As well as regular raku glaze firings we will be doing ‘Naked Raku’, along with horse hair and feather decorating techniques.
We will also be experimenting with a type of ‘sagger’ firing and smoke firing.

The atmosphere at a Raku firing is one you will not forget, an opportunity not to be missed!
As the class number will be capped, we recommend early bookings to avoid disappointment.

Specialist raku clay is available to buy at the Centre

Additional Firing Charges Apply

Age range: Over 18 years
